Care of the Elderly
From the beginning and throughout life we put in the effort to make the best decisions for our own future and for those close to us. From birth, through school to adulthood, from the first job to retirement, each step of the way we focus on goals, dreams and ambitions, and in turn, we think this creates a secure environment for ourselves and for our nearest and dearest.
The fact is people are living longer. And this raises issues about who looks after the elderly and how this cost is met. It’s a growing problem which many are neglecting to prepare for.
We believe everyone in their golden years deserves respect, dignity and a worry-free future. And with our friendly, personal service, we promise you just that.
It’s important that we care for our elders, and as Davis Blank Furniss has been helping its clients for over a century, it’s something our solicitors have the real world experience to help with.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years.”

At Davis Blank Furniss, we advise elderly clients and those looking after elderly relatives about how to protect their assets, preserve their lifestyle, and give peace of mind, even as time moves on and circumstances change.
Together, we talk through your issue, which might be the financial implications of moving into residential care, and we make sure that you’re aware of the options and that you’re happy about the final decision.

Care from careful solicitors
Some may not think about their older years, or may not worry about what will happen to a loved one in the long term. But those who want to be prepared for their later years, or who want to protect the interests of a loved one, benefit from peace of mind when they feel that the proper arrangements have all been made.
Whether you are calling on your own behalf or you are looking out for the interests of a loved one, you can talk to the solicitors at Davis Blank Furniss. We will help you to plan for the care needs of an elderly relative or friend, to protect assets, to secure lifestyle, and to bring wellbeing and peace of mind.
